, i mean, the industry is going to take a lot of losses. companies like allstate and travelers are all going to be there taking losses. on the commercial property side as well with flooding there'll be some losses. but you have to remember, this is the business that these companies are -- this is what they do. they'll be prepared to help their policyholders. they'll often buy a lot of reinsurance. their balance sheets are actually pretty strong, particularly after what has been a benign year to date. i would assume the stocks would be weak when they open on wednesday, presumably. but that's probably a buying opportunity. you have to remember that that's what these companies do. >> have you taken a look to see which companies actually have the best reserves at this point? >> you know, i think actually -- >> is there one that stands out? >> chubb is a very high quality company that's going to take some losses here but probably the one with the strongest balance sheet. >> cliff, good to hear from you today. thanks so much for coming on. >> thank you. >> brian kelly, you have a trade on an

raise prices, where as an all-state or travelers won't be able to price as aggressively. in terms of aig, the reason we own it, this is obviously a horrible situation, but i think it will be contained somewhat in the fourth quarter, maybe the first. it's really cleaned up its balance sheet and focusing on two business lines. casualty and life. i think the life business will start to see some momentum as he they get more distribution. i think they use the weakness to buy when the stock is trading at .6 times book value. >> mike murphy, you could see a bit of an earnings hit based on what the actual insured losses and payout turn out to be. which name in this space you think is best in your portfolio? >> the market's kind of telling you that aig is getting a burp today and the rest are selling off little bit. aig is the way to play this, but if you look coming into this storm, we talked a lot about maybe buying these guys on major weakness. if you go back over time, if do get a pullback on really any insurance company, it sets up as g good buying opportunity. i think there's a buying oppor

, but they say the companies with the most exposure include: liberty mutual, travelers, allstate, and chubb. auden thinks those firms will be able to shoulder a financial hit if the storm's damage mirrors that of irene. >> with every event companies gather more information on potential losses, so catastrophe losses become much more sophisticated. companies use those to measure aggregation of losses and potential losses from a given event. >> reporter: damage from wind, falling trees, and rain coming through roofs is covered by standard insurance policies. but analysts fear much of the damage from sandy to homes and businesses is likely to come from storm surge flooding which isn't. the insurance information institute estimates roughly 300,000 homes in the northeast could be vulnerable to this type of event. but the institute is optimistic many homeowners have flood insurance. >> nothing sells flood coverage like a flood and when hurricane irene hit last year there was widespread flooding throughout the northeast and many people did go out and buy flood insurance policies after that. so as l

'll get something in the fall. to answer your question, who is best positioned, allstate, travelers and chub, pricing has been rising in the sector. investors are getting more optimistic. driving 8%, 9% in a number of lines of businesses in these companies. this is probably going to be an opportunity. if you look forward a week or two for the companies to report and sort of them, you know, the facts coming in basically to provide a floor under the stock. if you look forward to that point there will be a great buying opportunity because these stocks have underlying fundamental momentum for recovering earnings in 2013 and this will be a chance for investors to be able to buy, you know, sort of get back into these even though they late her a run. >> jon najarian, you have a question? >> from one of our traders, that would be great, thank you. most of us would believe chub customers would probably be the stickiest and are obviously paying the largest premiums of that group, travelers and all state. would chub be your number one pick in that group then for that reason? >> well, you know,

insurers here in new jersey. about 11% market share. liberty mutual and allstate just below that with about 8%, and then chubb falling just below that with just over 7%. we should also note that a report from credit sweet said that as losses start too get into the $20 billion and $30 billion, allstate and chubb will be set to benefit from some of that, though we should note with the markets just opening today, those are definitely going to be some stocks that people will be watching as the market reopens and some of this damage is to be expected. of course, residents no doubt still reeling, and governor christie said fema will be a strong force here, no doubt, for many, many months. and he kept stressing that word, noting that this will be a very long recovery process. people are just starting to try and put the number on very early estimates. back to you. >> kayla, it looks like we're taking a few hits from your shot, but it is surprising to see the lights behind you. i don't know if you can still hear us, kayla. have they had these lights on the whole time with generators? is that a new c
